Reflections on maternal mortality in two decades
AbstractThe paper examines developments in the assessment and prevention of maternal mortality over the past 2 decades through review of the relevant literature. Problems of classifying and ranking causes, changing methodologies, discrepancies and illogical trends are demonstrated. Identifying causes of maternal mortality by surveillance and death reviews, rather than measuring ratios, appears to be more effective. Process indicators are considered as important as outcome indicators for monitoring safe motherhood. International technical reappraisal of maternal mortality is needed

In Africa, most of the causes of maternal, newborn and under-five deaths can be prevented with the existing cost-effective interventions. However, ensuring universal access and utilization of the key interventions remains a challenge. Mothers and children continue to die due to the triple delays in seeking appropriate care, reaching the health facility and receiving the appropriate management at the facility. 2. Lessons from maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services show that community empowerment, participation and ownership ...
